There have been times in my life I’ve found myself in a lower emotional state, a place inside my own head that I believe is real. It’s a place that’s easy to stay, inside that limiting belief.
It’s easy because I’m not the only one who gets settled in that spot. Many people around me believe that life is just hard, or the economy is in a slump, or we just are the way we are, or somebody else gets all the luck, or the locals aren’t ready for a business model like mine, or I don’t know how to do that one thing that would make all the difference, so I’ll just envy others for what obviously comes easy to them and jump back on social media to check in on what everyone else is doing.
What thoughts and limiting beliefs are you holding onto right now?
Some of my most profound learning moments have come from children’s books and one of my greatest teachers is Dr. Seuss. I particularly love his fabulous Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
In this book he reminds us that when we believe our own thoughts, our own limiting beliefs, we are hanging out in “the Waiting Place,” and until we snap out of it and get on with the business of living and creating the life we want, we are wasting time waiting for something or someone that isn’t coming.
You’re all you’re waiting for, so . . .
“. . . be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So. . . get on your way!”
